    Think about it. I think the % is high.
    What percentage of those are men?

    Give it a shot again T!
    All-Right, if it makes you feel better.

    Not saying that at all. How did you come to that conclusion bro? I haven't tried bench press, nevermind max bench, for so long idk how strong that bench even is. I am pretty positive my max bench is not over 250. So I guess I am the wuss!

    I didn't come to that conclusion, I was just playin'. Need to get my post count up you know! Hey, no worries, Jay Cutler doesn't do flat bench either, I hear he's pretty near the top of his field.

    I wish there was a resource out there that posted their exact cycles. It's funny how often that it is quoted "the top ten bodybuilders" do this, think about how much and how often they take things. Studies have shown that men who take testosterone injections and don't work out gain more lean muscle mass than those who workout and don't take steroids . When I was very young and my body produced massive amounts of chemicals I did really stupid things in the gym and got bigger and stronger.

    I always can't stand them when I first take them and compare, then they kinda grow on me. I still wouldn't want to stack them up against anyone elses, but I can usually find something to be positive about as it relates to my personal progress.

    LoL Twist, I hear you. I hate looking at Marcus' new avy.... I know i'm starting to sound homo because this is like the 4th time i'm commenting on his guns... but wtf dude... THICK. Then I look at my string beans and vomit!

    Look at FG's avy and see every fvcking muscle separation and striation.... then I look at my soft white body and vomit - again!

    I hit the gym today, after missing squats for two weeks, my diet was crap today, up late, ran into problem after problem so missed two meals, bumped my weight up to 275lbs for my squats and got 6 full sets of 10, hip below knee, before my body was done.

    I actually stepped on ths scale today, haven't done so in almost a whole month, and I can see my upper abs a little, so I'm thinking I may be close to that 15% I was trying to get to. I look so much different and thought I'd weigh like 178lbs, I weighed 184.6, and I've sucked up another notch in the belt and lost another inch off the belly.

    TB looks like you're making excelent progress compared to the beginning pics, lot more curvature in the arms some seperation in the different delt heads developing. Hard to tell without a back double bicept pic but If i were you I would focus on widening out your lats to help with the taper down to your midsection, Wide grip pulldowns/pullups if you're not doing them already. You can tell you've lost some weight around the midsection which makes it a little harder to judge bodyfat so I'm guessing around 15% + or - a point or so. keep up the good work Your bodyfat is a little lower than mine at the moment so i'll be posting up some starting pics on my workout thread soon. Thanks for the advice you've given, I'll be watching you as a motivation to myself.

    Great pics bro! Can you get a comparison up if you have time? Like a recap on diet/training and comparison pics? That would be nice for the guys who don't read the whole thread.

    Great job T, really man, what noticeable changes on you every pic post! It's me who is scared this time, because I KNOW I haven't made as good a stride as you have!

    You're doing excellent bro, just keep doing whatever it is because it's clearly working for you. Respect!
